Where do we go from here? The challenges of this past year provide a unique context for growth and professional development. The possibilities of the coming school year provide a unique opportunity to redefine “normal” in how we practice the craft of teaching mathematics. Join us for a three-day interactive workshop where we will explore pedagogical strategies for nurturing math skills that are non-expirable and inspiring our students to move beyond answer-getting to mathematical thinking.
Led by master teachers (and life-long learners), participants will explore misconceptions, extensions, depth and complexity, and multiple representations of Numerical Relationships, Algebraic Relationships, Geometry and Measurement, and Data Analysis in grade-level groups. These grade level groups will focus on vertical alignment, filling in pandemic-induced gaps, and preparing our students, including Gifted and Talented learners, for success in future math courses. Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of sessions to develop teaching strategies for technology integration, addressing nature and needs in curriculum and instruction, developing foundational understandings for success SAT and Advanced Placement, and encouraging sophistication in mathematical thinking.
